Finalists for this Year’s Chamber Business Awards revealed

Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce is delighted to reveal the shortlisted firms in the Chamber Business Awards 2019, sponsored by Folk2Folk.

The number of applications received this year exceeded expectations and were of an extremely high standard – making this year the hardest to judge yet. The annual awards look to celebrate the variety of businesses in the two counties, and this year’s celebrations provided 14 categories for companies to enter.

Free for Members and Non-members to apply, the opportunities that come alongside entering an award are invaluable including a great boost to staff morale, a powerful tool to raise your profile and a way to stand out against your competitors.

The Chamber is looking forward to welcoming guests to the awards ceremony on Thursday 4 July at the Worcester Arena.

With the countdown to the Greatest Showman-themed event now on, the lavish evening ceremony will celebrate the successes of firms in Herefordshire and Worcestershire in front of 600 guests. For this year’s awards, the Chamber is pleased to announce that the event will be hosted by Celia Delaney.

Guests will be greeted with a fizzy welcome drink and are invited to make use of DRPG’s lively drinks bar whilst networking with other guests, and making use of the entertaining photo booth.

After congratulating the winners and having your company’s photograph taken, attendees are invited to the popular Awards After Party, sponsored by TechTeam, at Bolero Bar on Foregate Street, Worcester.

Tickets for the awards ceremony are priced at £99.00+VAT for Members and £119.00+VAT for Non-members, tables for groups of 10 are also available at discounted rate.
